Rune Factory 5

Rune Factory 5 is an upcoming video game in the Rune Factory series. It is all set to release on March 22, 2022, for the Nintendo Switch.


Set off on a grand adventure in a fantasy world in the latest entry in the Rune Factory simulation RPG series. After losing their memory, the protagonist lands in a town named Rigbath. There, they are recruited into a band of peacekeeping rangers, and their new life starts. 

The protagonist then runs to help the girl from the monster, and is thanked for helping her, then invites them to a security organisation called Seed. In order to protect the peace of the town, the protagonist must solve varied cases.

In addition to their normal duties, the protagonist can tend the farm, cast a line into the nearby river, and many more! Team up with townspeople to battle monsters and unleash powerful attacks.


A hero loses their memory and ends up joining a group of rangers operating in the little town of Rigbarth. The hero is encouraged to tend the land as well as battle monsters in order to maintain peace. Players control a male or female hero with the default names of either Ares or Alice.
